so its been way past 30 days since release. are there any jp reviews yet or did se ask for another extension that we dont know about

if so either or could anyone post links to reviews and possibly translations. i googled and found nothing

just wondering if waiting 30days earned it a higher ranking then 4/10 avg it gets from na reviews


not that it will change my opinion on the game i just want more useless facts to fill my head with lol

I haven't seen any official ones but I haven't really looked for a couple weeks. This is one is user based.

4gamer Final Fantasy XIV

It's been going up and down in the 35-50 range since like week 1.

Maybe they got smart and paid the JP media not to review the game till ps3 release, would of cost them a pretty penny if they did lol No reviews at all this long after release is really fishy.

I would expect all the reviews are universal around the world.

I don't understand why people think the japanese feel any differently about the game than NA players do. They don't, they might be more polite in the way they phrase it but they feel exactly the same as everyone else about this game.

Example,
According to the 4gamer thread, the japanese player reviews break down like this:

90% or higher rating: 1.0% of the total votes
89-75% rating: 4.7% of total votes
74-50% rating: 15.1%
49-20% rating: 63.0%
19% or lower rating: 16.1%


Meaning that 79.1% (more than three quarters) of all japanese gamers on that site rated FFXIV lower than 50%.

Whereas according to Metacritic, the average user reviews are:

Positive: 58
Mixed: 15
Negative: 143

Meaning only 67~% of english speaking players (only two-thirds) gave a negative review


So actually the english speaking players seem to be more lenient on the game than even the JP players are.

i know all that i was specificly refering to the "wait one month before reviewing our game" message/threat SE sent to JP reviewers
i just wanna see if they get bought out and give the game a much higher review then everyone else

*points up to the Kotaku review link*

Clearly not. Though it's not as critical as a lot of the other reviews, it still doesn't portray XIV in a positive light.

Wonder what Famitsu thinks of FFXIV? They typically review Final Fantasy games extremely well (FF12 got a perfect 40/40, FF13 a 39/40).

SickleSage: No one should take non-scientific polls very seriously. While those numbers MAY reflect general attitudes towards the game in Japan, its not likely that they do.

I can tell you from what I heard on the beta forums (but this will be hearsay at best). They thought pretty much the same thing we did. They thought some aspects of the game were decent and could be built upon, but that the game as a whole was not so good. Again, this is second hand information, so take it as you will.
